First of all be pre warned if you stay in one of the rooms in the front building and are a larger person, the bathroom is very tiny and you can hardly turn around. Peter is very friendly and helpful. Rooms are in dire need of updating. Bed very hard. Sounds crazy but appeared that the quilt top of the mattress was on the bottom. Overpriced for quality of room.

Room Tip: Try to get a deluxe room instead of the rooms in the front building.

Hello 2rustygo,

When booking a room we do let our guests know verbally and through email the difference between renting a standard room versus a deluxe room. As for the beds we recently updated with memory foam and no spring high density mattresses and they are firm but comfortable, it’s a matter of personal preference however we are keeping in mind that this may not be suitable for everyone therefore we are in midst of resolving this issue as well. We are consist in our pricing with other motels in town and are proud of its cleanliness and service that we provide.

Thank you,
Peter

Stopped here with some friends on a motorcycle trip. Sign says new management. Seemed like the beds, towels, sheets and blankets were all new as well. Very nice, good price, clean and quiet. Beds are quite firm but after all day on a motorcycle this was great.

Really good fish and chip trailer (it is blue) about one block walk that had amazing white fish and chips but they close at 8pm.

If you're looking for a nice, quiet, very clean place to stay, look no further.
The price is fantastic as well! We just needed to stay one night and were impressed at how clean it was. The rooms are a little small, but we were just looking for somewhere to rest our heads anyways :) And go to Gary's restaurant across the street, a great place for breakfast.

Room Tip: We stayed on the main level and it had a double bed as well as a twin.

The Hawberry Motel is the best motel we have ever stayed at, very clean!! The owners Peter and wife Divya are extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. Peter even booked us a spot on the Chi Cheemaun Ferry (we didn't know it’s best to reserve a spot). He also took time to show us a map and point out some of the best sites on the island so we could plan our trip. We spent a while just chatting with Peter and Divya, a wonderful couple!
The towels and sheets smelled so fresh and were very clean. Everything seems to be either recently updated or new including the mattresses. We definitely enjoyed the AC. The flower gardens on the property are a work of art you can definitely see that they have a passion for gardening.

Great location everything you might need is close or within walking distance. I can't say enough about how great our stay at this motel was - we didn’t want to leave!! We loved it so much we came back after we toured around Georgian Bay on the Georgian Bay Coastal Route. http://www.visitgeorgianbay.com/motorcycle-tour.cfm . We will definitely be returning with friends!!
If you’re looking for a good place to eat we recommend the Anchor Inn….very yummy food with good prices /service and it’s just a few short blocks from this motel. (Their white fish tacos are the best)!

Thank you so much Peter and Divya…for being a part of making our vacation one to remember…we wish you both the best of luck, you guys ROCK!!

We'll definitely be back...Elvis and Silla =)

My travel companion & I stayed at this very nice motel for one night on our trip to the ports around Georgian Bay. The check-in is fast and friendly. The room was a nice one but a little dated and could use some up-dating. I still rate it as 'excellent' because of the friendly staff. The beds were very comfortable with firm mattresses, which I really liked. I would recommend this motel.

Hi Jimmy,

Thank you for recommendation and slowly but surely we are working on up-dating the rooms one by one.

Thank you,
